    Every time I read a review or watch a Youtube video, no matter the gun it has a great trigger and the best reset in the industry! I must be getting brainwashed, I'm actually believing this crap! Doesn't matter what, they all have the best! Am I nuts, wait don't answer that but am I on to something!?! PPQ-M2, FN-109, CZ-P10, on and on! 6pl2f.jpg

    They have to sell what their sponsors send no matter what.

    Very few objective reviewers out there (if any)

    Ever since Walther came out with the best trigger of any striker fired pistol every other company has been trying to beat it.

    Many you tube regulars started out with honest reviews. As they grow successful, and are sponsored and sent firearms, their credibility declines in the reviews. Just like gun magazines.

    The PPQ is nice, true. I prefer something different though, and my Walther favorite is the P99 AS.

    That’s cause most these simpletons doing reviews have no clue what a great trigger is.

    Makes me laugh that they think these plastic strikers have truly “great” triggers.

    Actually I think triggers overall have improved greatly over the years.
    They had to improve since they have become a major selling point these days.

    When it comes to striker fired polymer frame guns I think a majority of people think too much about trigger pull, how long have people been saying the M&P trigger sucks? Never had any problem with them myself. A carry gun doesn’t need a really light trigger pull.

    Well said

    I honestly just don’t get it. I don’t understand the obsession with these fully cocked striker triggers.

    I think most people buy these things just to shoot at the range. That’s fine and all, but it’s supposed to be a duty/service gun. There are much better pistols strictly for range use.

    There just comparing it to glocks, which isnt setting the bar very high.

    True, but that’s because Glock designed it for carry.

    I feel a smooth trigger with clean break is great for carry. I understand not wanting a super light hair trigger, but no need for it to be spongy or gritty.

    I like the longer pull. It’s just a personal preference. Not saying Glock is ideal, but I’d take it over these fully cocked strikers any day.

    So are the rest of them maybe except DEs. I don’t know anyone that carries a Deagle on a regular basis.

    Uh, the “rest of” what, exactly? :dunno:

    Do you mean the rest of the handguns besides the “Deagle”?

    Well that’s incorrect

    Maybe in your little world, sure, but not every pistol is designed for service. Sure many of those “could” be used, just like you can target shoot with plastic service pistols if you want.

    Funny how a guy who has obviously obsessed over this forum, posting 113,971 refers to Glocks as "plastic" pistols. LOL.
